We’ve long been in thrall of Leeds’ stoner-witch-doom-rock duo Faux Machismo (even the description makes us shiver with excitement), and they’re releasing their new single Artemisia today, February 5th, via Muzai Records. The pair, singer/guitarist Maeve Munro and drummer Anna Ridley, have based their track on a painting from the early 1620s by Italian painter …

Post punk Quartet Dusker have followed up their first EP with a second, titled simply EP 2. It carries on their DIY work ethic, Ep titles and superb sound. The band have shared the first track ‘Leo’ as a teaser. An EP to take you right back to the late 90s and for me many …

Leeds duo Faux Machismo, aka Maeve Munro and Anna Ridley, have been doing a fine line in stoner-witch-doom-grunge (that’s record label Muzai’s description but it’s so perfect I stole it) for a while now, and so we’re delighted to premiere their new video for ‘Dopamine’. Originally part of an ep, Dopamine is one of the …

CHARTING the times we are in, with all the fear, anger, hostility and frustration inherent, is something of a mission for Finlay Anderson – the man behind those purveyors of sonic terror, Internet Death. Still a teenager, the Christchurch, New Zealand producer has distilled down the dark matter of our times into a sandstorm of …

Prolific Detroit electronic artist King Shoji keeps his incredibly creative and prolific streak up with a new album on Muzai Records, Vortex. Which drops on May 29th. It’s a nine track ‘Suite’ of tracks, crafted in these lockdown times, it’s supposed to be listened to as a whole, rather than in parts, but despite that, …

Horror In Clay return with another track from their recording sessions with Aonghas Jones in the form of ‘Burnt Hands’ via Muzai Records. ‘Burnt Hands’ is another testament to the sheer antagonistic nature of Horror In Clay’s music. It’s utterly beautiful in all its piss-and-vinegar, macabre glory.Its crashing drums and sludgy awkward guitars with thick bass …

Taken from their forthcoming self-titled EP, out on Muzai Records on April 20th, West Mansion is the first time mysterious collective DuhkQunt have stuck their heads above water. Written mostly on Groovepad, and influenced by Namco classic Splatterhouse, as well as DJ Yoda and the like, it’s brilliantly coined by the label as Jerkcore, given …

I’ll be upfront: Flogging a Dead One Horse Town (FADOHT) are not the dreamy melodic popsters that often typify the kind of band I review. This eponymous EP is muscular, brutal, industrial noise, but filled with highly satisfying aural chemistry. The track titles alone endear me to the band – indicating a duo who don’t …

“Heck Cattle Grazing” is the first work to be released by Auckland art-folk/experimental group Horror In Clay. The group, featuring former members of popular group Girls Pissing on Girls Pissing, recorded the work with local engineer Rohan Evans and revealed the track last week with little-to-no warning except for a post on their label MUZAI Records‘ …
